James was not present at Mariah’s Halloween party over the weekend, where she was dressed as a sexy devil alongside ex-husband Nick Cannon and their 5-year-old twins. However, the singer was photographed wearing the 35-carat engagement sparkler she received from James back in January.

Earlier this year, Mariah told Access Hollywood‘s Scott Evans that she and James weren’t necessarily planning a big wedding, but that the event would still show off her trademark glamour.
